3 Counties Report Home v Charminster 13th September, 2014

I should have written this report immediately after the match. Now my head is full of our latest grandchild being born yesterday…a beautiful little girl! and it is hard to return to thoughts of golf!

So…our last match. What springs to mind? First it is Graham saying “You won’t say anything derogatory about Ray and I losing our match will you?” No, of course I won’t! I was off last, so I was there to appreciate everyone else’s nerves. Ray and Graham were out 3rd pair. No mean feat teeing off in front of a crowd, especially on our first, as one of the Charminster players found, putting 2 out of bounds. Ray and Graham were both straight off the first tee and to lose 2 and 1 means it was a good match. They were 1 down going up 16 but I was quite expecting them still to win. On another day?...who knows? Well done Steve and Sam. They closed out on the 17th, winning 2 and 1. Jonny and Sam won 3 and 2, Ann and Nigel 6 and 5, Sean and Sandra 4 and 3. A really good result. Thank you everyone. It means we finish 2nd in Div. 1 this year.

Tim and I played for the Reserve Cup. That was a hard decision. Graham threw it out there…The Captain should shoulder the responsibility. Really?!? I’m thinking the safest pair. What will Charminster do? Put out low handicappers or really good middle order? Would I get a panic call from my daughter and have to dash off the course? The Reserve Cup was the only Cup we could win. On the morning, all calm on the baby front, so Tim and I down as the Reserve Pair. Brian, no shots, Colin and I matched on 3, and Tim 4. On the tee, Brian sent one straight down the middle. Colin…hard to get airborne. Come on then Tim. But Tim into the rose bushes! I was straight. Tim recovered. I matched Brian’s 2nd shot and was up there 3rd shot. But Brian’s 3rd was a foot from the pin! “I like these greens.” he said. “That would have been off the green at Charminster.” “Well done,” I said but in my head I’m thinking “Don’t panic Mr. Mannering!” I knew from previous experience that Colin could be deadly once he sorted himself out, so I was hoping Tim would stay calm and send it straight first, then perhaps we could get an edge. We halved the 2nd. Then both Tim and Colin found form together on the 3rd. Talk about timing! Tim won. On the 4th, Tim up first…out of bounds! Brian played, (straight down the middle), and as stepped back to watch his ball said “Look at that. You have to admire it! Amazing!!…and as surprising as it is amazing!!!” But…Tim and I managed the half and overall we used our shots…ok, sometimes with the help of the trees! They were certainly on our side. Tim raised Charminster’s hopes of a recovery hole on 13, when his drive sailed into the trees on the left. But they were dashed when we found his ball had ricocheted back to the fairway and, even luckier for us, had gone forwards… to the top of the hill…and further than anyone. (Thankyou tree gods.) Tim stayed straight to the green, shot hole, and we had another hole under our belt. We finally won on 15, 5 and 3, which means Long Sutton won the Reserve Cup Div. 1.

Thank you team for a really good season. I hope you enjoy Freeman Trophy Day…Saturday, 11th October, 2014...Have fun AND bring in a good result!

3 Counties Report – Away at Wincanton, Saturday, 6th September, 2014

3 Counties Report – Away at Wincanton, Saturday, 6th September, 2014

For a change there was no wind at Wincanton. It was so quiet, my tinnitus was ringing. Surreal. Looking across the miles of sunbaked course, I wondered whether I was actually picking up some form of extra sensory level…the zones people were in, concentrating so hard, not tinnitus at all!

At the start of the day, Wincanton were 22 points ahead of us…85 v 63. This was their last game and our penultimate, our last being at home next Saturday against Charminster. The maximum points you can get from a home game if you sweep the board, is 17, so we needed a good win overall away to still be in contention for top of the Division on Saturday, 13th. A big ask but we never give up. It goes without saying we all did our best…and some of our best was Superhuman!…but the same applied to Wincanton!!! Our first 2 pairs, Steve Stopforth and Ray, and Sam and Nigel, pegged Wincanton back to 2 halves…4 points. Sarah and Steve won well…4 points, but Wincanton’s 4th and 5th pairs were too much on the day for Hilary and Malcolm and Sandra and Sean…intense matchplay. In the Reserve slot, Tim and I won 5 and 4, playing for the Joe Harring Trophy, but at the end of the day, our 8 team points versus Wincanton’s 10 confirmed Wincanton as winners of Div. 1 with 95. We are sitting second with 71. Congratulations Wincanton and well done Long Sutton. We nearly caught them!

Now we need a determined effort to pull in enough points against Charminster next week to retain 2nd place. This will be the last match for both teams. Charminster are on 58. Cannington A did not catch us. They played their last match this Saturday, finishing the season with 67 points. Folke are too far adrift on 43, so the fight for 2nd place between ourselves and Charminster will be decided at home. A race to the finishing line. Anyone interested in playing at 1.00 on Saturday, 13th September, please contact me on (07850595771) or sign the sheet in the corridor.
